SOME OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.

"At last we have a treatise upon our caricaturists and comic draughtsmen worthy of the great subject. … An entertaining history of caricature, and consequently of the events, political and social, of the century; in fact, a thoroughly readable and instructive book.Butler & Tanner, The Selwood Printing Works, Prome, and London. And what a number of political occurrences, scandals public and private, movements political and secular, are passed in review ! All these events Mr. Everitt describes at length with great clearness and vivacity, giving us a view of them, so to speak, from the inside."—Pall Mall Gazette.

"It is a handsome and important volume of 400 pages; the letterpress being a brightly written commentary, abounding with illustrative gossip, on the caricature of the century and the merits of its graphic humourists.Butler & Tanner, The Selwood Printing Works, Prome, and London. It includes a great deal of the more stirring social and political history of the time. The illustrations so plentifully strewn through Mr. Everitt's volume give it a peculiar interest."—St. James's Gazette.

"The work, which contains a large amount of information and some valuable lists of publications, is illustrated with about seventy wood engravings."—Literary World.

"A real contribution to the history of the social life of the century. The book is very fully and well illustrated, forming in fact quite a gallery of nineteenth century caricature."—Truth.

"The plates with which it is illustrated are remarkably well produced, and are useful in themselves, and are neatly and cleary printed, so that they give a capital idea of the originals from which they are prepared."—Saturday Review.

"Gives an elaborate estimate of the merits of the later caricaturists and a complete account of their lives."—Graphic.
